Because this is a novel of a young woman who is coming of age and she lived during one of the toughest times in recent history, the Holocaust and World War II, we will be discussing some subjects that are sensitive and difficult at times. Students are encouraged to talk with one another about it as this is a safe environment to do so. We will have the chance to ask questions and will be discussing these topics in an open format. I ask that students and parents that have concerns to reach out to me about these topics which include racism, sexism, puberty, young love/romance, violence, genocide, war, and more. 

The Holocaust is an intense subject and Anne Frank does not shy away from the difficulties of the events that took place. She questions everything about herself, yet is able to be confident in who she is.
